Nanette: A Very Brave Dog

and how one little dog showed her life

Bertie run over by a cyclist!!

Poor Bertie!!! This afternoon on our walk, Bertie was running along and suddenly a cyclist travelling at speed hit him mid ships!!!

 I rushed to pick him up after he'd stopped spinning and sat on the seat with him....He was  all rigid and there was blood running from his mouth! I was convinced he was seriously hurt. Problem was, I was a good half kilometre from the car and Nanette was pulling away from me all the time.

 On arriving at the car, I drove quickly to the vet who happened to be free!! A thorough examination revealed a broken tooth and nothing more serious except shock. She gave an injection for that and we left for a very quiet evening!!

 Today....two days later, he's fine and walking as normal...eating very well as usual ,so we were lucky there!!! This picture was taken during the evening after we got home from the vet.

I am life which wills to live

By respect for life
we become religious in a way
that is elementary, profound
and alive.
